Sassi di Matera Living Nativity Scene
December 8th to January 8th, 2023 Living Nativity Scene 8 representations
The 12th edition of Sassi di Matera Living Nativity Scene is one of the most anticipated and evocative events in Basilicata.
It takes place on December and the final one from December 8, 9, 10, 17, 18 2022, and January 6, 7, 8 2023
The event is held in the famous “Sassi”, ancient cave dwellings situated in the old town of Matera. They have been used in many Christian-themed films, including The Gospel According to St. Matthew (Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1964) and The Passion of the Christ (Mel Gibson, 2004).
Six scenes (Annunciation, Sanhedrin, Market, Ancient Trades, Herod’s court, Nativity) are performed in the city center, creating an emotional atmosphere.
Thanks to Gruppo Storico Romano’s performers, the daily life of Judea under Roman rule lives again.
Paid entrance ticket. Reservation required
